Course Description
The most westerly golf course in Europe.

Experience the magic of Ceann Sibeal a 6,737 yards, par-72 traditional Championship Links. Each hole on this magnificent links carved from the natural landscape of one of the most unspoiled parts of Europe, with hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding "burn" that twists and turns through the entire course.

As you play, the whole panorama of the Dingle Peninsula is revealed - hidden bays with small fishing villages, glorious hills and mountains and the Blasket Islands out in the wild Atlantic. This area abounds in archaeological treasures, wild flora and fauna, arts and crafts and ancient Gaelic culture. The Irish language is still spoken here. These magical and mystical qualities will make your round of golf at Ceann Sibeal one you will never forget.

Club History

Ceann Sibeal was founded in 1924, and was located at Ballintaggart near Dingle and was known as Dingle Golf Links. The club then moved to Doonshean, in Dingle itself. They made their final move to Ceann Sibeal in 1972 and have never looked back. The club has since developed one of the finest links courses to be found anywhere in Ireland and built a magnificent clubhouse.
